China - November 9th, 2010

Smoke hangs in the air over the Sichuan Basin in the Chinese province of Sichuan. Tall mountains, capped in snow in this image, are holding the smoke within the low-lying basin.

The area of the Sichuan Basin is bordered by the Himalayas to the far west, including the nearby Tibetan Plateau, the Qinling range to the northeast, and mountainous areas of Yunnan to the south.
